Lancaster, PA - On November 16, support Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology & Foundation in this year’s ExtraORDINARY Give, Lancaster County's Largest Day of Giving. For the past five years, in just 120 hours, the Extraordinary Give has raised $22.5 million for more than 500 organizations. Give Extra & Join in the Fun with Thaddeus Stevens!
For 24 hours only, your donation at ExtraGive.org will be stretched by a pool of more than a half-million dollars. That means your gift goes farther, reach higher, and does more to provide students fun STEM learning experiences, tools for economically disadvantaged Stevens College students, and lab materials and equipment. This year is primed to be the biggest ExtraGive yet, but it'll only happen if you're part of the action!
All donations to Thaddeus Stevens College Foundation, up to a total of $25,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by GSM Industrial and the Gooding Group Foundation.
Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology educates students for jobs in 23 high-demand, skilled associate degree majors from advanced manufacturing and computer fields to construction trades and printing technology.
